It is very awesome to walk on the glacier. The only way to see the Meade would be in a helicopter. Our pitot was very informative explaining the formation of glaciers. Explaining the safety rules and performing his Glacier pushup, kinda funny.

It was cheaper to book it independently. As long as she can climb into the helicopter and walk on a surface that is a bit uneven she can do it. My mom is 94 and definitely couldn't do it now but definitely could have at 89.
